  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Jane: (to Tarzan) I've been trying to explain right and wrong to you, but I think maybe you already know the difference.

    • Jane: I almost wish I knew where John went.
      Sam: Why? You think he can help us track this guy?
      Jane: I don't know.
      Sam: Takes a vigilante to catch a vigilante?
      Jane: I don't think of John as a vigilante.
      Sam: You say so.
      Jane: No, Sam, I don't think it's fair to judge him by our rules. I know that he is unpredictable.
      Sam: Yes.
      Jane: I know that he is wild.
      Sam: Yes.
      Jane: I also know that he never lies. Not ever. His moral compass doesn't waver. Unlike mine. I think John might be right. My rules are lies. I've crossed the line so many times lately, I don't even know where it is anymore.

    • (Tarzan is trying on his father's suit jacket)
      Kathleen: Fits perfectly.
      Tarzan: I'm like him?
      Kathleen: Very. I was just a teenager when he died. Had a bad case of big brother hero worship. I never knew exactly what happened to the plane. So I spent years hoping that he'd walk through the front door one day. Safe and sound. That's the hardest thing to let go of. The hope. How's that jacket feel?
      Tarzan: Scratchy.

    • (noticing Tarzan's shirts are ripped)
      Kathleen: So, I guess you don't like those shirts I got you, huh?
      Tarzan: I do now.

    • (opening narration)
      Narrator: Detective Jane Porter had everything she ever wanted. But one night, a mysterious stranger changed her world. John Clayton, a man raised in the jungle, then brutally abducted by his uncle, finds himself thrown into a battle for the Greystoke empire. Falsely accused of murder, he and Jane form a bond of mutual protection. To rise up against those who might harm them, protect those in need and secure a future neither could have foreseen.

    • Tarzan: You caught the man?
      Jane: Sniper. Um, no, no. We're still working on it.
      Tarzan: Sniper only hurts bad men.
      Jane: Yeah.
      Tarzan: That's good.
      Jane: Well, I know it seems that way, but, uh, no, what he does is against the law, which makes it my job to stop him.
      Tarzan: I hurt bad men, and you don't stop me.

    • Nicki: You wanna talk about what's bothering you?
      Jane: No. I just wanna get a grip. I got a few things on my mind.
      Nicki: Let me guess. John Clayton.
      Jane: Wrong. Okay, right. Nicki, I have feelings for this guy. How can I even be thinking this way so soon after Michael died? What kind of person am I?
      Nicki: A human person.

    • Jane: I think it would be good for both of us if we set up some rules.
      Tarzan: Rules?
      Jane: Yes. Like...uh, like there can't be any more touching, between us.
      Tarzan: I like it.
      Jane: Okay. I don't.
      Tarzan: Yes, you do.

    • Jane: I wish I could see the world in black and white, the way you do.
      Tarzan: So do I.
